|The vibrant Cuban metropolis Havana is, yet in its state of decay, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. A nineteen-fifties pre-revolutionary boom still characterizes the
city, alongside picturesque colonial architecture: renowned international Modernist architects, often working with artists, created fascinating architectural ensembles at the time.
Clarity, panache and color today still bear witness to the pioneering spirit of those years. The photographer Bodo Tuengler, has documented the most impressive buildings of Havana’s short Modernist period and unveils surprising new
perspectives of the „sleeping beauty“.
